sookie00--I agree 100% with everything you wrote. I just finished watching some older episodes and the patients were way more involved in the story. I do think Shonda has to get rid of people so she can write real stories again instead of jump all over the place. I'm hoping that instead of them all totally disappearing some on the non-essential characters (like April, Avery, Sloan) are just made into recurring characters that aren't necessarily in each episode. Wouldn't enjoy it without Meredith, Christina, Arizona, Alex, and Callie but I could handle everyone else just appearing once in a while in exchange for good storylines. And I still don't think Owen is cheating with a person. I think the comment was metaphorical.

It's no news that Cristina has been a difficult person to have a relationship with. She hardly expresses any thoughts nor any commitments and demands everything in her ways. In fact I don't even understand why Burke and Owen would fall for her in the first place let along getting married with her.

But still, Owen cheated! It may hurt to love Cristina but he hurt her in a real way. Hope he will make amends for it.

I can't be mad at him to be honest.When I try to be mad at him I have to think about what he's lost: his unborn child. In a way he is a grieving father. So everytime I see him I just want to hug him because noone else did. NOONE acknowledged his loss/pain. NOONE was there to hold HIS hand when his child died just in front of him. And I know that some people think that aborting a child does not mean that you kill a child. But for Owen it did mean that his child died in front of his eyes. Just think about that before you hate him.

Damn it, Owen. You don't cheat on someone who didn't want to get married but married you anyway because she loves you. You don't cheat on someone who bought a firehouse because you love it even though she didn't. You also don't cheat on someone just because she didn't want kids and you did. Cheating is horrible. It's damaging and damn it, it's cowardly to cheat on her than leave her. You're a coward.

I hate any cheating storylines. I'm a daughter of a cheating father, it's something I'd always hate just like how my guy hates smoking because he lost his mom to lung cancer she contacted from second-hard smoke.

I love Kevin McKidd and I love Owen but I hate this one. I still liked him when he choked Cristina. Shonda's doing another cheating storyline. It was as annoying as George and Izzie's storyline. Mark's cheating storylines, not so much...I kind of expect that from him but he's better now.

Well, I'm looking forward to the next episode :)

I apologize for the repeated posts.

I'm mad at Owen. A lot. You should have left her if you were just going to cheat on her.

I'm mad at Owen. You don't cheat on someone who didn't want to get married but married you anyway because she loves you. Sure, she was PTSD-ing and very scared at the time but damn it, Owen. She bought a firehouse you love even though she didn't like it. You can't cheat on her just because she doesn't want kids. Whoever it is...Teddy, April or whatever, I'm very mad at them.

It can be April and if it is, I'll hate her again. I'm barely tolerating her. If it's Teddy, I hate her more. It can't be Bailey, not because Owen won't find her attractive, but because she would know it's wrong. She pointed out the trickiness of Webber's situation if he goes out with Avery's mom. She won't be someone's other woman.

Lexie, what the hell? Meredith is hoping to boost her confidence. Mer can't come back to Neuro though she'd be perfect at it because Derek will always be looking over her shoulder. Outside Neuro, he trusts her as his wife...even when she's on another specialty but not on his.

I found Avery's mom kind of annoying. She's acting like a cougar, she knows the Chief (I stil think Webber as Chief) is married, right? And Avery's good-looking but that girl is not the girl for him. It's cute how Mark wants him to get laid. But Eric Dane looks weird when he dyes his hair dark. He looks better when it's graying.

But once again, damn it Owen. If you love her and it hurts too much to love her, leave her. Don't stay with her and betray her.

This episode was maddening. I hated the whole botched neuro surgery storyline. I know they were looking for something dramatic but I don't think that this did it. Meredith didn't even want to do neuro but he put her on his service, and of course it ended badly. Shes such a good surgeon and yet everytime it comes to neuro it seems shes making these stupid decisions which I completely don't even understand.
Owen and Christina...eww. I have never liked them as a couple. Christina used to be hardcore and I'm not saying she can't cry or fight for her marriage but I thought that is what Owen loved about her in the first place. She showed him who she was and he married her anyway so he can't a year or two down the road decide hey this isn't what I wanted. He already knew. He knew she didn't want kids and when she quit surgery he encouraged her to go back because that's who she is.
I thought mark and lexie were going to get back together but that doesn't seem like that's ever going to happen especially since he's talking about moving in with whatever her name is. Sorry but she is so unnecessary and has only been in what? two episodes so its weird to not even see their growth as a couple. Not like I want to but just saying
We need a good episode. A real one like in the earlier seasons.

I have so many issues with the episode that are an extension of issues with the season. I like the development of the nurse Emily and the move from Owen cheating with her to someone else. At first I couldnt believe that Owen would cheat because despite the fact that he made the decision to marry Cristina knowing that she was completely career orientated. It made me think of two things. firstly how he left his fiancee earlier in the series and is caught out by her father while he was dying in hospital. Also, how he, to an extent, tries to change Cristina like Burke did. Its like he ignored how she really was and imagined a different Cristina.Im usually a fan of both but right now I find it hard to like Owen because he got himself into his mess and doesnt have the decency to clean it up himself. I cant believe they would put Meredith back into Neuro just to have to fail again (bad storyline). The whole Morgan/Alex thing is creepy. Sick of having little/no real interactions between Callie and Arizona. Theu dont need drama like last season but at least show them happy, in love and as a family.

I thought it was a good episode, but once again I'll go back to the same things :
- Sick, awfully sick about Christina & Owen. Where is this going ? Owen cheating is out of character, according to me. And that storyline is really deeply deeply deeply BORING.
- The 27 year old lady unable to speak was the most interesting part of the episode, especially the actress that played so well that scared patient when she realizes what's going on.
- Don't see the point though in bringinb back Mer to Neuro if it's to make her mess up again.
- I will NEVER say it enough : there is not enough screen time about the patients, I miss the storylines from first seasons where we knew so much about patient's history and background and where it was hearbreaking.
- I like Morgan more and more, go get our Alex !
- I deeply miss Callie and Arizona.
